15-Minute Watercolor Masterpieces, Anna's first book, is one of our strongest selling titles. She made watercolour approachable, fun and easier than ever - and now she's doing the same with the latest painting trend, gouache. A marriage between acrylics and watercolour, gouache is the next big thing in the art world - it's easier to control than watercolour and allows for richer pigments and easy fixes, making it a great option for beginners.

Anna shows you just how magical gouache can be - and each of her 50 projects can be completed in just five easy-to-follow steps. Divided into chapters on beautiful landscapes, colourful flowers and plants, cute animals and more, readers will have a big variety of projects to choose from. And each step is accompanied by an image, making it even easier for readers to follow along.

Anna is the founder of DearAnnArt, an online art community with hundreds of thousands of followers.
